Just a footnote to Jere Lips' remarks about drift and
tectonics:  I feel that credit must be given to the
"non-American, J. Tuzo Wilson, of the University of
Toronto, for establishing the mechanism
and "reviving" Wegener's theories in the early
1960s.  Jock went on to become Principal of
Toronto's Erindale College and Director of the Ontario Science Center.
